Around 11:00 UT on December 12 (tomorrow, 6am for US east coast observers) Mars will be about 12 minutes of arc away from Zubenelgenubi. The timing is not especially critical, and there's no particular importance to this. It should make for a pretty sight, and if you've never managed to identify that nav star, here's your chance. Mars is in the southeast as morning twilight begins.
